We have eaten here many times in previous years and received a warm friendly welcome and a good, reasonably priced, meal. The recent change of ownership has unfortunately not necessarily been for the better and this will not be on our dining list for our next visit to Funchal.

Friendly service but food suffered by comparison with local fare at nearby restaurants. More expensive too

We reserved a table via this website and got 30% off. Service was good and the food pleasant. My husband was unhappy with his shrimp starter as they were overcooked.

We were in Funchal for one week and tried a lot of restaurants. This is the best dinner we had during the whole week. We had read some recent negative reviews, but we found the food to be excellent, the service perfect and had the greatest experience here. We went for the three course set menu (12 euro p.p. excl....

I ordered the steak which came with 3 sauces and chips. The steak was very nice however a little over cooked for my liking ( asked for rare and it was more medium), covered in garlic, garlic and even more garlic. The skinny chips were beautiful and I'm 100% a chunky chip girl. Reasonably priced and nice staff.

Unfortunately we didn't check trip advisor before we went. This restaurant came highly recommended from a tour guide so to say the experience was disappointing is an understatement. Overall the food was decent but the service was the worst we have seen in Madeira by far. The service ruined any positives. It was clear that we were not welcomed or... More

Visited often in previous years - now under new owners. Food was awful, fish overlooked, worst chips ever had, soggy vegetables and everything swimming in grease. Certainly will not be back.
